Don't just turn away when you see something happening that you know is morally wrong. It is because wrong doings have been ignored that has made them acceptable therefore a common occurrence. We must set moral standards in society that we demand be upheld unconditionally if we want a morally safe environment to live in. There has to be a change in how we react if we want to make a positive change in the lack of basic human compassion for one another that seems to be so common these days. Let's do whatever we can to make common sense, common decency and common courtesy be common in society.

If you don't try to fix it then you can't say that it can't be fixed. If you don't try to make your life better then it won't get any better. If you want a different outcome in your present situation then you will have to do something differently. The definition to insanity is doing the same thing over and over again the same way and expecting a different result. No matter how, when, where, or by what circumstances led you to be where you are in life ONLY you can do what it takes to make lemonade out of the lemons you are dealt with.

Take a moment today to think about a simple task that you could do just for you. We tend to put off the things that we need in our chaotic busy lives that would make a World of difference in our "peace of mind" if we take just a moment to do something nice for ourselves every now and again. Stress levels in these tough times we are living in can squeeze the very life out of us if we don't keep it under manageable levels. We must take care of ourselves so that we do not let stress build up in our mind putting tremendous amount of pressure on our physical body squeezing literally the very life out of you.

Help when you can but not if you can't. It shouldn't interfere with what you need to do for yourself. Those that run themselves ragged helping others usually don't have someone to help them if they wear themselves down where they can't get up. You won't be able to be there for those around you if you don't take care of yourself first. Fill in slots for your own life then squeeze in time for others if you can.

If you let anger stay fresh on your mind it begins to consume every area of your life. When you are angry you put pressure on your physical body also. It starts out over one situation that you could not avoid that starts eating you up inside. You must learn to let go of the anger before it does permanent damage. As you begin to get angry and you feel your body tightening just imagine the pressure on your internal organs. You may recover quickly personally but raising your blood pressure in a fit of anger can bring on Sudden Cardiac Arrest that you can't recover from.

Facing your problems head on and fixing them fast does far less damage then avoiding it for so long that the problem just gets bigger. You waste far more energy trying to avoid things over and over again then you would if you just dealt with it so you could forget about it. Putting off things that you will eventually have to face anyway only adds more stressful days that you could avoid if you just do what you got to do. Putting off things till tomorrow only means you wasted another day. Minimize the damage by quickly facing it so you can Just Flush It out of your mind.

In the midst of a group of leafless trees on a cold winter day stood the tiniest tree that was just covered with bright red leaves. As I admired it's vibrant color of red the other trees became almost invisible. It demanded my attention not allowing the barren feeling that the drab leafless trees sight would evoke. It reminded me that in our every day lives we may be surrounded by circumstances that evoke those same barren feelings but if we will look hard to see just one small bright area in our life we could at least for a few moments focus on it then we will feel the emotions that it's sight will bring.

We create bullies when we allow bullying to go on by pretending we don't see it. If there are no consequences for bad behavior it becomes accepted. It would be so easy to prevent if it is not tolerated therefore not allowed at a very young age. Parents and schools have a chance to prevent it from becoming a life altering problem not only for the victims they bully but for society to deal with for their lifetime. Set Moral Standards that you will tolerate that you stick to not let an attitude of bullying have any chance of growing. We can plant seeds of a positive mindset to replace the bullying we deal with in society.

It is bad enough when others put you down but nothing makes you stay down but you. If you can dream about it then you can reach it. If you doubt that you can do it then there is no doubt you won't try to do it. If you know that you can do anything if you put your mind to it then you know you will do what needs to be done. If you don't believe you can do it then you will believe there is no reason so you won't try. Your thoughts about yourself can either give you the confidence you need to make your future bright or they can take away any chances you have to make your future brighter. Your "point of view" of yourself will determine the reality that your thoughts create.

It may take a little longer to do it right but it will for sure take a lot longer to fix it if it can be fixed if you do it wrong. It is not a shortcut if it simply leads you short of where you need to be. If you skip the steps necessary at the beginning to reach your goal it will make you waste your time and energy going back to fix it as you find some of the steps you made earlier need completely redone. It is not time wasted if you took the time to do it right but you sure will waste your time doing it if you have done it wrong.

Every day is a new day. How you choose to start it will set the pace for the day. That is one reason why breakfast is the most important meal because you don't want to start the day hungry and grouchy. People say they just need to go back home and go back to bed and start their day over again when it starts out bad because how you start the day sets the pace. While you brush your teeth in the morning be sure to flush out your mind also to flush away a bad day if you need to before your day begins.

There are many people who try to inspire or guide someone they love in a positive way....but they just don't listen. You have some great ideas and they may very well help them in a positive way....but they just can't hear you. If your own family won't listen then spread your light in another family. Sometimes it takes a Stranger to tell people the same things that their friends and family have been telling them before they can hear it loud and clear. While you are waiting for your family to hear it, You be the Stranger that helps someone else hear it loud and clear.

Take advantage of a chance to laugh when you can before you forget how to. A good belly laugh is good for your mind, body, and soul. I know it is hard to feel like laughing when you are under a lot of stress but when you laugh you produce endorphins that will ease some of the stress as it helps you to relax. Remember the old saying "laughter is the best medicine"? Well it is true. Stress on your mind causes stress on every part of your physical body as well. Quit stressing your heart out just laugh away a heart attack.
